Very good food. Give u plenty to eat. Had steak fajitas and they were excellent. Pot pie looks scrumptious. Only disappointment is they don’t give a military discount. Little on pricey side

Flatbread was truly awful. Bottled beer was good. Don’t bother unless you are interested in televised sports. Really — don’t bother.

This is a popular sports bar. Always crowded with people on the weekends and game days. Love their nachos and sweet potato waffle fries.

I would never come here again. I honestly do not think my server made any eye contact with anyone at our table. She didn't get our order correct and never apologized for the error. Once the food came out it was great. However, I would...More

I am not the manager at the restaurant, but I do believe they offer call ahead seating...but your best bet would be to contact them in advance of your visit.

I'm not sure I understand the question? This Champps is in a shopping center with lots of free parking. On a busy day, you may have to park a little further away (the restaurant is near the theater so it may fill up closer... More

A modest little restaurant where locals meet up to catch the game and where neighbors become friends. We continue to take pride in preparing made-to-order comfort food every day. Private and semi-private rooms available for large parties.
